To preserve and encourage local arts in Gilbert, the Higley Center for the Performing Arts relies heavily on sponsorships and volunteers. Along with the small dedicated staff, sponsors and volunteers help HCPA keep the performance facility and productions running smoothly throughout each season. Support is also essential to the center’s mission to “Grow the Arts in Gilbert.” For those looking to volunteer, sponsor, or are interested in other available support opportunities, contact the Higley Center Manager Robert Zucker, robert.zucker@husd.org.

During the spring 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Gilbert’s Higley Center for the Performing Arts postponed live ticketed shows scheduled to the fall season, including acts such as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Bellamy Brothers. To provide entertainment virtually during the facility shutdown, the HCPA developed its own local TV channel HCTV to broadcast shows featuring performers, local guests, and hosts. The online streaming broadcasts showcased entertaining piano playing, humor, storytelling, world-renowned vocalist groups, as well as Elvis and Moody Blues tributes, to name a few. The HCTV channel also hosted special event links to Higley Unified School District’s Virtual Graduations for Higley High School and Williams Field High School, both located in Gilbert, AZ.

    It's a nice auditorium, well laid out and intimate, bringing you in close to the stage. Sound is good, no weirdness there. The only dings are the restrooms are in one corner of the lobby next to the snack bar and it becomes a huge traffic jam at intermission. Also parking is limited close to
